Festival

Woodstock ställer in

Publicerad: 29 april 2019 av Magnus Olsson

Skulle firat 50 år.

Vid några enstaka tillfällen har Woodstock återvänt. I år skulle varit ett sådant år. Festivalernas urfestival skulle nämligen fira hela 50 år, med besked. Tidigare i år har man avtäckt årets line up innehållande namn som Jay-Z, Chance the Rapper och The Killers. Sedan innan har även The Black Keys hoppat av projektet.

Ett par skavanker har stört festivalen, men nu kommer nya besked från finansiärerna Dentsu Aegis Network, som de delat med sig av till Billboard.

It’s a dream for agencies to work with iconic brands and to be associated with meaningful movements. We have a strong history of producing experiences that bring people together around common interests and causes which is why we chose to be a part of the Woodstock 50th Anniversary Festival. But despite our tremendous investment of time, effort and commitment, we don’t believe the production of the festival can be executed as an event worthy of the Woodstock Brand name while also ensuring the health and safety of the artists, partners and attendees. As a result and after careful consideration, Dentsu Aegis Network’s Amplifi Live, a partner of Woodstock 50, has decided to cancel the festival. As difficult as it is, we believe this is the most prudent decision for all parties involved.
